After a tragic accident on Martha’s Vineyard, keeping secrets becomes a way of life for the Tangle family. With memories locked away, the sisters take divergent paths. Callie disappears, Mimi keeps so busy she has no time to think, and Ginger develops a lifelong aversion to risk that threatens the relationships she holds most dear.
When a whispered comment overheard by her rebellious teenage daughter forces Ginger to reveal a long-held family secret, the Tangles’ carefully constructed web of lies begins to unravel. Upon the death of Glory, the family’s colorful matriarch, and the return of long-estranged Callie, Ginger resolves to return to Martha’s Vineyard and piece together what really happened on that calamitous day when a shadow fell over four sun-kissed siblings playing at the shore. Along with Ginger’s newfound understanding come the keys to reconciliation: with her mother, with her sisters, and with her daughter.
At turns heartbreaking, humorous, and hopeful, Sisters One, Two, Three explores not only the consequences of secrets—even secrets kept out of love—but also the courage it takes to speak the truth, to forgive, and to let go.
SISTERS ONE, TWO, THREE by Nancy Star is not a light, easy contemporary read, but rather a deeply emotional, heartfelt story about family dynamics, loss, and love. Traumatised by a tragic accident in their past, we learn about the lives of three sisters who have coped with that moment in time in their own ways. Ginger is a nurse, married to easy-going Richard, and raising her seventeen-year-old daughter Julia. Desperate to prevent any harm from coming to them, she suffocates those she loves around her in her bid to ensure their safety. Her sister Mimi is always busy, rushing around in her own way, and then there is their youngest sister Callie who disappears on her travels, leaving them unaware of what is happening in her life. As Ginger struggles to keep control of her daughter, the sisters are forced to come together and face the past, but maybe they can find some peace in the truth. SISTERS ONE, TWO, THREE by Nancy Star flows easily from start to finish, and with flawed, realistic characters, you cannot help but be caught up in their grief, as they try to find their way through their individual versions of what happened in the past, and find a way to move on in their future. A truly emotional read.
